I'm pretty sure the price on Gustad will come down, like one of the TSN guys said, No way Buffalo gets a 1st for a guy who has never scored a playoff goal.

More importantly a guy who is "gritty and tough" yet when on the ice when Lucic runs over his goalie he doesn't even flinch towards the guy.

Gaustad is not a solution I would be happy with.

Made me laugh when I heard a 1st rounder for him, it's bargaining 101, start as high as you can and hopefully meet somewhere in the middle.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Pierre LeBrun said that the asking price is a 1st round pick. (TSN feed)

I don't like Gaustad to begin with, but for a first I would be livid.


First rounder? No way. Roy or Pominville would be worth a first, not a bottom-6 player with limited offensive upside.

Per Bob McKenzie:

Not confirmed, but hearing very strong rumors of Andrei Kostitsyn to NSH.


No idea what Nashville might be giving up though.

hollands gotta make some moves , might be our last best chance to win with lidstrom being here , i think maybe we should take a chance on andrei kostitsyn , he's had 3 20+ goal seasons in the last 5 years and the thing about him is they say he's lazy here but he hasnt really gotten a fair shot and i think detroit could push him , hes got all the tools to be a 30+ goal guy

I know this wont happen but if we got kostitsyn to play next to datsyuk i think it could be magic and i was thinking what if we did something drastic and keep bertuzzi with andrei and pav and moved franzen down with filppula and hudler (hudler's been on a role this year , dont wanna mess that up)

And we move down zetterberg to the 3rd ... my thinking behind this would be because it would give us a serious 4 line scoring threat in the playoffs and the teams wouldnt be able to put there best defensive specialists against zetterberg and he'd be getting scoring chances against other teams 3rd pairing d

again i know this wont happen just an idea ... sorry for the long post guys

I want Gaustad. 6'5", 225... solid guy. He would thrive in Motown.

Loo - as I said earlier he has all that size and he doesn't use it.

This guy watched Lucic run his goalie over and didn't even flinch towards defending Miller. The best he could do was a staged fight a week later to save face.

Not the type of guy I want on the team. Size for size sake is worthless. I'd take a guy Drake's size with that level of fortitude over a big guy with no guts any day.

Nashville is offering 1st+Laasko+Wilson+Ellis+Lindback for Nash.

Talk about becoming a big spender.

Thats nuts!!!! Ellis and Lindback are both the real deal. I am surprised the price is so heavy!

Kostitsyn is more like a Plan D.

That is what I was thinking but it looks like they may be making a big push for Nash as well.

TFP reports Sharks looking to make an "impactful move"

Source says Toronto and Buffalo close to making deals. Not related.

Aaron Portzline says CBJ not lowering demands on Nash. Very firm.

Heard Buffalo deal could be Gaustad to Detroit. Not sure if true yet...

Kostitsyn has been told he was traded to Preds. More to come...
